Photographer's Note

I took this picture when we were on a short beak at the Veluwe. We went for a long walk at the Hoge veluwe national park, on a nice and sunny day.

About the Hoge Veluwe national park from the internet:

The landscape of the Hoge Veluwe National Park alternates between dry sandy soils, woods, heathland, shifting sands and old agricultural settlements. The world-famous Kröller-Müller Museum is situated in the park and boasts an art collection that includes paintings by Van Gogh, Seurat and Picasso and sculptures by Rodin, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. It also contains an underground museum, the Museonder, next to the Visitor Centre, where visitors can study underground flora and fauna. The park can be explored on one of the 1700 white bikes which are available free of charge.
